Which is the best frozen bread dough available in standard supermarkets?

I think you might be asking that question to the wrong group of people.

I've never seen more than one kind in any of the cities in which I have lived.

Usually, it's not a mass-produced name-brand, but a local bakery that puts about a pound of dough into plastic bags and sells them to the supermarket.

Look at the ingredients.  If there is anything else than water, flour, yeast and salt, then I would think about avoiding it.

The good thing about these doughs is that they are prefermented - so the bread that they make will have more flavour than if you mixed the same dough yourself and used it the same day.

If you are looking for a premade dough because you don't have a bread machine or a stand-mixer and you want to avoid the hard work of kneading, look at this:

You don't have to follow that recipe - use any recipe you want.  But you can easily made great dough at home with very little effort and no equipment.  Let the dough sit in the fridge overnight and you will have as flavorful a dough as you could get anywhere.  Take the dough out of the fridge an hour before you want to shape it and enjoy baking.
